5'6" 107lbs is my goal at the moment, but part of me wants to drop under 100. Not too far. It's okay if I weigh more than 100 fully dressed. 98lbs sounds perfect. We'll see how I feel when I hit 107. I'd really like to stay under 110 even fully dressed. Something about keeping under 50kg. I dont want to be truly spooky scary, just skinny.

I'm 5'8 and my goal used to be 125, but now it is 135. Still 45 pounds away from that though, so my mind may change as I get closer. 


saying "no thanks" to food is saying "yes please" to skinny

I’m 5’8” and I am probably in the minority here but 145 is my ideal weight. I’m currently 170. When I weighed 135, I wore a size 0 on top (B cup) and I remember buying a size 4 petite skirt to wear on the bottom because I needed a shorter skirt and the regular was too long. Those were the days lol. I’ve always had a curvy butt and thighs with a small waist so I think that if I got any thinner my top half would be way too thin with ribs showing too much which is not my taste (I realize some people here like that) but I don’t want to be smaller than a size zero on top. My point is that body type/figure plays a huge factor in my answer and probably most people’s answers to this question. Also whether or not you want to look just thin or bony.

I’m 5’8.5” and my goal weight is 135. I’ve never been that low, so I’d need to see what I looked like. I don’t imagine going any lower. I’d love some muscle tone too.
